If there's a silver lining with this dry summer, its that my dry beans are drying ahead of schedule with little to no disease or blemishes. May be a record year for us.
Hopefully the corn does nearly as well, though I have seen some signs of smut.
I'm just glad we had enough rain to make a crop. We feel bad for you folks hit hard by the drought.

Though it has been a rather dry season here, we are not near in as much trouble as others.
